LVoeBride:  When you buy garland, a good deal of the fee goes towards paying for the labor to make it.You could make it yourself. Alternatively, you could simply make sure that you buy full or bushy greens. Lay them on the table, overlapping the stems so the leaves cover the stem end of the previous branch. When you get to the far end, turn the branch the other way and tuck the end under the other branches.

 If you want to add flowers, you simply tuck each individual blossom into a florist’s tube filed with water and hide the tube under some greenery. Candles can be nestled the same way.

I think you could DIY this without too much trouble.

You could go to your local flower market to get the greenery and some flowers (alternatively raid the neighbourhood if you’re feeling sneaky)…then get your wedding party to help put it together (the night before with some wine!?). I think it’s definitely do-able!

I would avoid anything artificial…my Mum is a wedding florist and I’ve helped her quite a bit over the years. We’ve never seen anything artificial that really looked good enough. I think the amount you save on DIY, you could spend at the flower market.
